    It's the one about the opposing soldiers who stopped fighting and exchanged gifts on Christmas. Does anybody know who recorded it?

    By the way, it is true ... it did happen. Dec 24th 1914 ... the German troops started it in the area of Ypres, Belgium by decorating their trenches and foxholes. They ended up exchanging gifts and even playing football. Just an little FYI. [​IMG]
